Leopard Love

Leopards are found in the Indian subcontinent and are enlisted to be critically endangered. They are typically found in grasslands, woodlands and riverine forests.

A cheetah has a deep chest and a narrow waist, with short, coarse fur. It is tan with black spots, each 2 to 3 cm in diameter. It has a white underbelly without spots, and four to six dark rings at the end of its tail, before a bushy white tuft. An adult cheetah can range from 46 to 160 pounds and 43 to 59 inches long in head and body, with a tail between 24 and 33 inches. Males tend to be slightly larger than females. Cheetahs also have semi-retractable claws. They can purr, but they cannot roar.


Leopards have relatively short legs, longs bodies and massive skulls with powerful jaw muscles. Their head and body length is usually between 35 and 75 inches, with a tail between 24 and 43 inches. Males are about 30% larger than females, weighing 66 to 200 pounds, compared to females between 51 and 130 pounds. Leopards have yellow fur, with small black spots inside polygonal rosettes.
